Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Shows on this day in history

Hey Now, It an amazing body of work, this Grateful Dead archive. Like most of you, we got hundreds of tapes & records and now CD. Just lack the time to listen as we once did. As I stumble around the piles of collected stuff, it hard to find any one show. This daily Archive lets me check out shows, song of different era's.
Also, Yea some times you can tell if certain band members are under par. Like in the late 80's shows around SF. Most of the band sounds loaded. Like the show I heard today from 84. Jerry's voice is ragged,but as an artist he putting his heart into his work. I find it pretty poignant myself. And very few mistakes either.
Those Hunter/Garcia song grow on you and there not suppose to sound exactly the same.
I never thought the band was'nt high on something. No better or worse than the audience. That life style was new to all,and we all learned our limitations. Like Coltrane or Miles the guys were musicians,artists, singers of songs, man did the lay it down!
Check it out today you'll find something wonderful happened on this day in history.
